Trojan Firearms announced it was now selling and shipping it’s newest gun: the PRO9V1 9mm carbine. As with many other pistol caliber carbines that have been recently

Many people will be happy to hear these guns can be fed from Glock magazines. However, there is a variation of this gun that will feed from STI 2011 style magazines. This will likely appeal to some shooters – especially those running already running an STI 2011 pistol in competitions.

A neutered version that is unfortunately necessary for California residents is also in production. It is supposed to be compliant with all 2017 laws.

These guns use the AR style platform with a blow back system. The company states the guns are not simply converted AR-15 rifles, but “specifically designed a pistol caliber carbine from the ground up for superior reliability.”

Uppers and lowers are machined 6061-T6 aluminum. The lower has a flared magazine well, Teflon coated springs and Teflon coated detent pins. The company includes a tension screw to remove any slop between the upper and lower receivers.

Hand guards made of machined 6061 are used and have KeyMod type attachment points. The hand guards have a Picatinny type rail in the 12 o’clock position.

Other features of these guns include an ambidextrous charging handle, 4150 steel barrel with lightweight contour and tunable muzzle brake.

Pricing for these guns start at $1,399. Note: The photo shown above is from the company’s website and may show options that are not part of the base carbine package.

    $1400 for a non LRBHO with a keymod hand guard? Ho-hum. MLOK would have been a better choice IMO.
